The BEST recipe for easy homemade pickled jalapenos from scratch! Fresh jalapeños are quickly pickled, jarred and ready to eat in under an hour - although they will be super spicy! Delicious on burgers, pizza, stuffed into burritos or on top of nachos. Yields 1 liter jar or about 4-1/4 cups.
In a medium sauce pan combine sugar, salt, garlic, water and vinegar,
Heat to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar and salt. Once at a boil; add the sliced jalapenos pressing them so they are submerged under the pickling liquids. Remove the pot off of the heat and let them sit for 10-15 minutes.
Use tongs to transfer the jalapenos into a clean jar. Ladle the pickling juices over top until you've reached the top of the jar. Let cool at room temperature before securing a lid and popping them into the fridge.
This is not a canning recipe therefore NOT shelf stable and will need to be kept refrigerated.I recommend treating these as I would any opened jar of jalapenos. They should last a long while if kept refrigerated in the airtight jar.If looking for canning instructions or directions, follow the USDA guidelines.
